How Many More Days Justice 4 Davontae Sanford 2016 Time For Change Bring Me Home Enough Is Enough !

How Many More Days Justice 4 Davontae Sanford 2016 Time For Change Bring Me Home Enough Is Enough ! | SocialAction2015 | Scoop.it

Who is Davontae Sanford?

Who is Davontae Sanford? He is Detroit's Forgotten Child. Innocence raped in the grips of overzealous cops and a prosecutor who doesn't give a damn about justice or innocence. She wants Detroit to forget Davontae!! To ignore her great evil misdeeds and sweep the case under the carpet. And your silence has made it all possible Detroit. Until it happens to your child - of course. BUT she suffered a MAJOR defeat at the Michigan Court of Appeals when that court granted Davontae relief on every issue he raised but one; namely whether Private Investigator Linda Boris can testify as to the details of the murders that Vincent Smothers confided in her --as he has to CNN; the Associated Press; his attorney and last but not least to Detroit Homicide investigators. Davontae cross-appealed that issue at the Supreme court. Smothers wants to confess on the record to clear Davontae for the four murders he did not commit. What does Smothers have to gain by confessing to a crime that he knows will get him a mandatory life sentence? Nothing! But Kym Worthy has a lot to lose if he does. Millions of dollars in civil liability and her integrity (which isn't much) for WRONGFULLY convicting that young boy! And Detroit? You are okay with this? Well we can't wait for sleepers to wake up from a dream. Fortunately one appeals court made up of all conservative judges by the way ruled in Davontaes favor. The prosecutor appealed that decision to the Michigan Supreme Court where we are now in a,wait and see hold for the high court. I am cautiously optimistic however that given the fact the three judge panel who ruled in Davontaes favor were all conservatives the state high court which is majority conservative will deny Worthy's appeal. And then the ugly court battle will begin. She will NOT be able to stop Smothers from confessing on the record and convince the trial judge to sustain Davontaes convictions. There are many lawyers on both sides. Smothers will flip her case upside down and she knows it. Hence her reason for fighting to stop him. Treacherous and devious she is.Roberto Guzman

Benefit sanctions handed out to thousands of people ‘unlawful’

Benefit sanctions handed out to thousands of people ‘unlawful’ | SocialAction2015 | Scoop.it
Sanctions imposed on thousands of benefit claimants for not taking part in the DWP’s so-called “back-to-work” schemes are unlawful, a court has ruled. 

Three Court of Appeal judges upheld an earlier decision by the High Court, potentially paving the way for millions in refunds to people who had their incomes cut while they were unemployed.

After a previous Supreme Court judgment ruled some sanctions unlawful the Government passed a new law to make them legal.

Bill to Limit Juvenile Solitary Confinement Advances in Colorado House

Bill to Limit Juvenile Solitary Confinement Advances in Colorado House | SocialAction2015 | Scoop.it
DENVER - The state Legislature is considering a bill to limit the use of solitary confinement as a punishment for Colorado's youths. Despite a 1999 law banning seclusion, independent investigations have shown the Colorado Department of Youth Corrections has repeatedly put juveniles in isolation for days and weeks at a time. Elise Logemann, executive director of the Colorado Juvenile Defender Center, said two separate investigations found the state's Department of Youth Corrections had repeatedly held kids in small rooms with only a metal bed frame, toilet and sink.

What Prison is Like for Davontae in Maximum Security

2 men burst into a house in a Detroit neighborhood where 4 men were watching Monday Night Football and shot them all to death. When the police arrived to begin their investigation, they saw 14 year old Davontae Sanford in his pajamas in the crowd of people wondering why the cops were there. They pinned the murders on him and he's serving 40 years in maximum security prison. Help us free him by sharing this video. Another man confessed to the murders 6 years ago and led police to the murder weapon. For Davontae to still be in prison is unconscionable. Join us in our efforts to free this innocent young man. In this video, Valerie Newman tells what life is like for Davontae in prison. It is very difficult. Share this video so others will know and the pressure on these corrupt cops and prosecutors will increase to the point where they can't cover it up any longer. Scroll down for the links to friend Davontae on facebook, friend his mom and send her your best wishes and click on the link to sign the petition to draw attention to this injustice. http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/ju... https://www.facebook.com/taminko.sanford https://www.facebook.com/davontae.san...

US police under fire for racial messages, emails

 Police in Los Angeles and San Francisco have come under fire after authorities uncovered racist text messages and emails. Three officers in San Francisco have already left the police department after the messages were discovered and a fourth is facing disciplinary measures. In the communications, minorities were referred to as "barbarians and wild animals". Also, the text messages used the N-word to refer to black people, and described Arabs as "rag heads." In Los Angeles, the county sheriff's chief of staff, Tom Angel, has also come under the spotlight for emails he forwarded in 2012 and 2013 mocking Muslims, blacks, Latinos and women. Angel at the time was a top police official in the city of Burbank, near Los Angeles. The US police is already accused of racial profiling and indiscriminate targeting of blacks.
